    Default some of the buyer just dunno what is the meaning of "fixed" price==

    lately I want to clear out some items from my dry cabinet,
    some of these items I stated "fixed" price,
    but there are many buyers who just offer another lower price,
    so nowadays people dunno the meaning of "fixed"?

    may be I shall just expose their ID/number as a lowballer here

    I won't call them lowballers if its a reasonable price they asked for, at least they are making a serious offer.

    just post in your B & S thread that you "wont reply to any offers lower than the stated asking price"...

    people are just trying their luck, maybe you're in good mood to deal at their offer. it's normal, even in "malls"... some shoppers try their luck and ask for discounts!
    Why so serious... Son?

    I have encountered that CSers pm with name and contact to say that they are interested in the item. In my wts, I already specified that only those agreed with the price (firm) need to pm me. When I responded to this CSer via SMS, he did not reply

    you can add in your thread that you will not respond if they fail to read your thread carefully, then just ignore these people.

    small matter, is it necessary to expose them? you are those "typical" people who complained about every small little thing.
    Objection !!!

    ts has not exposed anybody yet..
    probably gd to spread awareness of the stated behaviour..

    gotten a few "what is your best price?" pm's..
    well, i'd have put the "best price" out there to attract buyers, right?

    sometimes, they juz want "better than best"..

    This world is like that. Even if you say free, there are people who will ask whether you can send to them. When you say RED cam, some will ask whether you have WHITE also. When you said "fixed price", most will try their luck for some discounts.

    I sold my bare cam, but somehow he managed to convince me to add in the SD cards, the leather case and the strap, even when I said I needed another 100 for those, but in the end, he took everything without paying extra with his pitiful look and voice! KNN, after the money transaction, he even changed my leather case to another nicer and more expensive one in his bag

    "Fixed Price" is a hugely misunderstood word in English in Buy & Sell.

    No one has up to now able to define it with clarity, absoluteness and to the satisfaction of the buyers.

    Next time say:

    不二价!

    Many people failed their English in 'O' level

    You must explain it properly.

    The term "fixed price" is a phrase used in the English language to mean that NO bargaining is allowed over the price of a good.

    Maybe some people interpret "fixed price" as "u can fix the price" so they bargain?
